How to make XML driven flash menu?
With the new user interface it's very easy. Just set "Save as XML" as shown in the picture below.
UI => Navigation tab => Save => as XML in file
New XML file "navigation.xml" will be created. It will be placed in the menu folder.
The XML file contains nothing but the DIV id="menu", navigation structure with all links and captions of the menu.
To change the place for the XML file and other menu files, go to Position tab => Menu files placement => Files folder
XML menu setup in older version (without UI)
- Create XML file.
Create an empty file using any text/html editor.
Save the file with "xml" extension, for example: "navigation.xml"
- Copy your navigation settings in the XML file.
Copy the DIV with id='menu' from the page and paste it in the XML file.
It must contain nothing more than DIV with id='menu'. XML example:
- Set up a menu to take the navigation settings from the XML file.
Upload the XML to your server. Set the path to the XML in Tag Inspector, using parameter xml_Path
The xml_Path value can be relative (navigation.xml
) or absolute
